Converse by John Varvatos To Discontinue Pretty and Punk Women's Line

converse-john-varvatos-closingAnd another one bites the dust thanks to the crappy economy: Converse by John Varvatos' womenswear line is set to close on April 24, though the company will be going full speed ahead with the men's. Aw, and to think those Florent diner (which, ironically, is also closed now) ads with Daisy Lowe where she's wearing that adorable leopard-print coat was what had convinced us we had actually pull one off. Or to think that three years ago, when that sequined oversized cardigan came out, we were ready to wade past the boatloads of girls wearing Alice + Olivia party dresses so we could pair our sequins with black tights and Converse! Sigh. Guess we better grab all the pieces from the online store while we can—anything to ride out this economic downturn til its long-awaited end! (FWD)
